I am pleased to announce the release of LB Booster version 2.00, the fastest and most compatible version yet! It may be downloaded from here:
http://lbbooster.com/LBBRUN.exe (optional runtime engine)
Changes in this version include:
AT LAST! support for huge strings (with up to millions of characters), greatly improving compatibility with LB4.Richard.
Increased integer range, from -18,446,744,073,709,551,615 to +18,446,744,073,709,551,615 (>18 billion billion!).
Increased floating-point range (from less than 1E-4900 to more than 1E+4900) and precision (about 19 decimal digits) which are both much better than those of LB4.
The binary AND, OR and XOR operators now work on 64-bit integer values (previously only 32 bits were supported).
A new 'include' directive supports modular programming and code libraries!
The FILES statement puts the file's attributes in info$(n,3) (an undocumented feature of LB4).
The TEXTEDITOR will accept Unix-style line endings (LF).
The LOF function, the LOC function and the SEEK statement now support files longer than 4 Gbytes.
